Getting the Facts Right

Gender of Angels, and Praying to Angels?

Although God nor angels do not have a gender, The Father, His Son, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and angels are always written as male figures.


When the second set of fallen angels fell, it was because they abused the ability that God gave them. They went against the nature of God when they married the daughters of men and children came from the relationship, which resulted in them being giants. Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them,  that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose (Genesis 6:1-2).


Angels are called the sons of God- Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them. And the Lord said to Satan, from where do you come (Job 2:6-7)?



Angels are huge; that’s the reason when the  angel Gabriel to people; he said, “Fear not.” Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people (Luke 2:10).  But the angel said to him, "Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John (Luke 1:13).


Proof that Angels are male figures:

They have male names; there are only three are listed in the Christian Bible:

1)     Lucifer, how you have fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations (Isaiah 14:12). Lucifer was the light bearer. Cherub- You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; you were on the holy mountain of God; you walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones. you were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, till iniquity was found in you. (Ezekiel 28:14-15). Lucifer became Satan (adversary), God’s enemy and our enemy. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8).


2)    Michael, the archangel; warrior. Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke you! But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia (Daniel 10:13).


3)    Gabriel, the one who brought tidings from the Lord. Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary.  And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women! (Luke 1:26-28).

There are some religious groups that pray to angels. Some of them go as far as asking angels to help them find something they have lost, or misplaced. Who does the Word of God tell us to pray to, and to whom did Jesus pray? Jesus taught the disciples to pray this way: Our Father, in heaven, hallowed be Your name……… (Matthew 6:9-11). Jesus’ prayer -He prayed for His disciples, for all other believers that would be added to the kingdom, and He prayed for Himself (John, chapter 17).
